Dry eyes can present symptoms including: pain, itching, irritation, redness, blurred vision and simply feel uncomfortable. While it may seem counter-intuitive, at times patients with dry eyes also report the production of excessive tears. When your eye does not receive sufficient lubrication, a signal may be sent to continue to produce tears, but the composition of these tears is not substantial for lubrication or coating the eye and simply run down the cheeks. Another cause of dry eye is the lack of tear production to keep up with the needs of your eyes. Specific conditions including wind and sun may also impact the severity of dry eye syndrome. At New York Cornea Consultants, your Bayside eye surgeon can fully discuss your dry eye concerns as well as provide a thorough eye examination to determine the reasons for your dry eyes as well as recommend specific treatment.

Dry eye syndrome may be cause by a number of factors consisting of: age, LASIK eye surgery, side effects from particular medications, rheumatoid arthritis and other medical conditions. While you may consider your dry eyes an inconvenience or low risk eye health problem, your symptoms may be an indication of a more serious problem including corneal damage that can only be determined during a comprehensive eye examination in our office. At New York Cornea Consultants, we can determine if your condition can be readily treated with over-the-counter eye drops, prescription strength drops and/or oral medication or in the most severe case, if you are a candidate for surgery by one of our extensively experienced and highly skilled Bayside eye surgeon.

Treatment For Dry Eyes

There are many benefits to visiting an eye doctor regularly. Unfortunately, many people tend to overlook their eye health because they do not know just how important it is to their overall health. All sorts of patients should schedule annual eye exams. Some people think that it is only necessary to visit the doctor when they are experiencing signs and symptoms, but you may not even know you have symptoms until they are identified by an eye care professional, such as our doctors here at New York Cornea Consultants. Some eye conditions can seem just like everyday irritants or allergies, such as dry eye, but our eye doctors in Queens can provide you with a proper diagnosis and the proper treatment for dry eye.

Dry eye symptoms may feel or seem synonymous with seasonal eye allergies, and we here at New York Cornea Consultants can help determine whether you have this syndrome with a simple eye exam here in Queens.

wearing contact lenses, sensitivity to light, you may experience blurred vision among other symptoms. Dry eye syndrome can not only be uncomfortable but it can also make your eyes incredibly more sensitive to injury, irritation and infection. Dry eye syndrome is often caused by the eyes’ inability to produce proper, lubricating tears. Tears help protect your eyes from irritants and help clean out the eye if debris, particles or other airborne substances should get caught in your eye. If these things cannot be properly flushed out, they can create eye infections or even lacerate your cornea or eyelid. Additionally, tears that fail to lubricate your eyes can make it more difficult for your eyes to heal from such lacerations or irritations.

Dry eye can be treated, but the first step is to identify it. Prescription eye drops or ointments can be used to keep your eyes properly lubricated. Self care can also include staying hydrated, using eye drops, and protecting your eyes from dryness, UV rays and any wind or sun. If you experience any of these symptoms, call us and set up an appointment with us here at New York Cornea Consultants in Queens today.
